The demand of the user / planner was to automatically load the cadavers from the preservation tank to the extracted mobile dissecting table. Capacity is 40 cadavers in 10 tanks (4-tier). The extraction of the formaline fumes is done by an extraction system inside the room.


The demand of the user / planner was the very fast storage of appr. 100 cadavers in connection with a large dissecting / obduction room and floor scale for weight recording. Automatic loading / unloading of cadavers is done by electrically operated lifters.


The demand of the user / planner was a mobile docking dissecting table with downdraft sidewall extraction through the floor with automatic loading / unloading of cadavers. The fume extraction is lead through the „twin“ docking stations which takes up one mobile dissecting dissecting table on each side. This allows at least 14 students to do precise and odor-free dissection work with optimized room consumption. The newly planned and constructed disseting room did allow to lead the extraction ducts through the floor – not destroying „total view and communication access“ by vertical duct collumns up to the ceiling. Transport of cadavers from the preservation tank / cold room is carried out by the docking dissecting table itself. The whole procedure is done without touching the cadaver.
